I would describe my PR apprenticeship as insightful, challenging and fun, and my learnings as an apprentice have certainly fed into successive roles. The mentorship and structured learning I received helped me to develop many skills and much insight in a short space of time, and I really appreciate having had this opportunity. https://www.prca.org.uk/How-PR-Apprenticeship-forged-career-pathway-GEW2020

Derrick Otchere, Past PR Apprentice (2016), Capella PR

I feel very confident that I have found the right path for me. Every day I look forward to going to work, to writing, to creating, to doing something that I really enjoy, something that I know is important. This apprenticeship has already taught me so much in such a short space of time, and I am really looking forward to continuing my journey and pursing the career that I have always wanted.

I would wholeheartedly recommend an apprenticeship for someone who is looking to launch themselves into a career in PR. The nature of my work has exceeded my expectations, I’ve been fortunate enough to attend industry events and as somebody who loves history, I feel privileged that I am able to work in, and write about six of the most important palaces in the UK. https://www.prca.org.uk/RosieMoffat

For those considering this apprenticeship, PR is for people who thrive on analysis and strategic thinking, those with a creative personality, a curious nature and (most importantly for me) those who want to change perspectives with the power of communication. https://www.prca.org.uk/The-Apprentice-2

Stella Wright, Past PR Apprentice (2018), Templemere PR

My apprenticeship really supported my on the job training as I was able to implement new techniques I learnt through the coursework into my role. Additionally, it has helped me to develop professional skills such as negotiating and selling into the media. I have been offered a permanent role and I am excited to continue to work for a company that is at the height of film ingenuity. https://www.prca.org.uk/AmySpringett

Amy Springett, Past PR Apprentice (2018), Warner Bros.

I am glad that I chose the apprenticeship route over going to university as it allows me to gain experience whilst earning a qualification (and money)! Not only am I learning the theory behind PR, but I am also working with clients at the same time, putting that theory into practice. Day to day, my job changes; no two days are ever the same.https://www.prca.org.uk/MollyProut

My apprenticeship has helped me become employable as it has provided me with almost 2 years of experience in PR environment and a nationally recognised qualification. Additionally, it has helped me make new connections and develop my skills which will hopefully help me progress my career. https://www.prca.org.uk/Tom-Thomson-PR-Apprentice-Fact-File

Tom Thomson, Past PR Apprentice (2017), Wessex Water

The gravitas of the course was proven when I was looking for my next career move, as all of the agencies I interviewed with mentioned that having the higher diploma and invaluable experience had made me stand out. I would recommend to anyone looking for a way into the PR world or even a step up from a more junior role, to consider the PR & Communications apprenticeship through the PRCA! https://www.prca.org.uk/LaurenAmbroseApprentice

Lauren Ambrose, Past PR Apprentice (2015), Holistic

The apprenticeship helped me achieve experience in a job role, the chance to develop a wide range of skills, and the chance to gain a qualification, all whilst getting paid. I am rarely doing the same thing two days in a row; I get the opportunity to work on a huge variety of projects, with so many different people, and I am never bored! I have been given a permanent role within my organisation upon completing my apprenticeship. https://www.prca.org.uk/HarrietShineFactFile

My apprenticeship has helped me to achieve many things, including allowing me to get my foot in the communications world. I love my job. I learn something new every day, every day is different and never boring! The apprenticeship enabled me to develop my personal skills as well as career skills, I have learnt so much about the industry but also myself throughout the entire process. I’m proud to have been an apprentice. https://www.prca.org.uk/JasminCruickshankFactFile & https://www.prca.org.uk/ProudApprentice
